Hello, my name is Valerie Llanas, Legacy Elementary School Counselor. I started my career in education in 2003 after receiving my undergraduate degree from Eastern New Mexico University. While teaching I returned to graduate school and received my Master of Education in Counselor Education from Texas Tech University. I have been a school counselor since 2009. I have experience counseling with both elementary and middle school students.
As the school counselor, I am here to help students develop social and emotional learning and mental health awareness and wellbeing. I work with students to build problem solving and conflict management skills. I also promote College and Career Readiness for all students because it's never too early to start dreaming about the future.
My husband is a teacher and a coach, and we are raising three active young boys. We are often watching or attending some type of sporting event. I love the Red Raiders and the great state of Texas.
I look forward to working with the students, staff, and families at Legacy this school year. Please reach out this school year if you should need my assistance. I am here to help!
